Yes it'll all work together. However, the one thing you should note is that you have a substandard power supply. 525 W is enough to handle that build sufficiently enough but that's a standard Cooler Master PSU without an efficiency certification and if I'm not mistaken it's a tier 5 (the lowest possible) PSU. Your parts are a little underwhelming in the first place, however you may encounter random shutdowns. If you do, or if you want to upgrade any of your parts in future, then you need to change that PSU. You can find more reputable bronze certified ones for around $60 - $70.

For the games you mentioned, that CPU and GPU should handle them quite well. However, I'm a little concerned about your FX-4150. The 4150 is from the Bulldozer line of CPUs and honestly they're quite crappy. Though you can probably get away with 60 fps on LoL, most certainly Minecraft, and probably Black Ops 2, I'm willing to bet you'll experience occasional frame drops on Skyrim. Plus it's just not that great for video editing so don't expect to get too much out of it, though you'll certainly be able to do any number of video editing related things, just don't expect to do so at blazing speeds.

The last thing I'm noticing is that you listed an SSD, but not an HDD. I assume you have an HDD but just didn't list it however if you don't have one that's problematic. You can buy one for $60 - $80 for a nice 1 TB HDD at 7200 rpm. But that kind of begs the question, why do you have an SSD for an entry level build? SSDs are really for higher level builds for really nice boot up times but really they're not necessary and the ones that are large enough to be convenient for general file use are far too expensive. If you haven't bought the parts yet, you should get rid of the SSD and just get an HDD instead since you'll run out of space VERY quickly.
